Re: Experimental evidence for evolution

... in another species on the other side. [Emphasis in original.] Evolutionary theory also predicts that after a period of geographic isolation, diverging species will become reproductively isolated. This reproductive isolation has been shown many times in nature. And using flies, which have ...
